Breakfast/Brunch in SW 'burbs
As you can see from the lack of replies, this is a tough area to find really good places (speaking as a born and bred in the area expat). But, you'll have to eat somewhere. The Paragon on 95th and about Kostner near the hospital is not great, but decent. I was last there about 8 months ago, but it's been there for years.
Anybody found any new places in Beverly?
Mulcrone's on 95th a bit west of California. For brunch, don't think they do breakfast. Chef there is a CIA grad and has worked in some fine restaurants.
A unique Beverly experience is the Original House of Pancakes on Western -- same chain as Walker Bros. It abuts a KFC. You can order a combo pancake/fried chicken platter. No kidding. I wouldn't call it fine dining and you'll hate yourself later, but it's different.
Coda's Bistro (or Koda's Bistro) also on Western is a fine dining option as well. Not for b'fast, though.
Best of luck.
